SAO PAULO, Brazil (DTN) -- Brazil's soybean harvest continues to progress smoothly, registering good yields across the country.

Dry conditions could affect Rio Grande do Sul, where rain forecast for the weekend did not materialize and came in the form of isolated showers. With most of the crop in Brazil's southernmost state in the flowering or pod-filling stages, the lack of precipitation on the charts for the next week is worrying, said AgRural.
